Policy Statement

The University established standard set-points for heating and cooling on all campuses in order to conserve resources and control energy costs. These standards are described below.


During the winter season the heating controls are set at a maximum of 70°F. During the summer season the minimum cooling temperature will be 76°F. Facilities Services will respond to hot/cold calls to ensure that systems are running properly, but will not adjust the temperatures to levels outside of the standards.

Facilities Services also discourages the use of space heaters and fans in areas that are at the accepted standard temperature levels above. If there is a special need please contact Facilities Services at 331-3000.
